The fight in the Valley. From private sources we have obtained some additional particulars of the resent affair in the Valley, which has already been noticed. It seems that on Wednesday last a portion of the Maryland battalion, attached to the command in the Valley, went down as far as Kernstown, near Winchester, and captured eight Yankee pickets, two of whom subsequently escaped. On the following day a large force of Yankee cavalry came up within a few miles of Woodstock, where they captured some half dozen of our pickets. A portion of the command of Gen. Jones attacked and completely routed them, following them to Newtown, some fifteen miles down the Valley. The number of Yankees killed is not known, but was certainly much greater than the number lost by us.
s--The House met at 12 o'clock, and was opened with prayer by Rev. Mr. Read. Mr. Kennu, of Ga., moved to suspend the rules with a view to allow the following resolution to be considered: Resolved, That the further consideration of all questions; reports, bills, and resolutions be suspended until the currency and tax bills are acted upon; and that immediately upon the reading of the journal each morning the House will proceed to the consideration of those questions. The motion to suspend the rules was agreed to, and the question recurring upon the resolution, the ayes and noes were ordered, and resulted — ayes 67, noes 10. So the resolution was adopted. Mr. Foster, of Ala., moved to reconsider the vote, with a view to offering an amendment that one hour be allowed to submit resolutions, &c. Mr. Boyston, of Ark, moved that the motion be laid upon the table, and the motion was agreed to. On motion of Mr. Jones, of Tenn, the House went into secret session.
